FAMILY TIME TO THE MAX!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two teenage daughters, dogie, and myself had the ultimate family time! Claudia's "Oasis in the Mountains" was just what my family needed to have a vacation to remember through our lifetime. She thought of everything from a fully stocked kitchen, plush towels, relaxing chairs on the deck facing a to die for sun setting mountain view, to a cute little bear holding my toilet paper. My wifey pooh loved going into such a tidy and clean retreat. We had all (doggie too!) hiked up to the top of the mountain to have an incredible view that took my breath away! (Oh, that was my wife hugging me so tight because she was so happy!) Boy what a vacation we had! We had fantastic stuffed pizza from Mamma Mia's, froze our toes in the Nantahala River, shopped in Cherokee, picnicked in the Smokie Mountain National Park by a babbling creek, caught fireflies at twighlight by the cabin, hiked up Waterrock Knob after driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway, trekked down to North Shoal Creek Falls, zip lined on the Ocoee Zipz, white water raft down the Nantahala, ate a delicious dinner at Shoebootie's, and much more... Thank you Claudia for sharing your home and being so gracious. We weren't ready to leave our little piece of heaven...

I must write this review even though I do not want to share this beautiful mountain hideaway. The entire experience was wonderful. The house was immaculate and very well furnished. I can only say it really deserves the 5 stars. It is also nice to have a host who really cares about your visit. Claudia was great.We shall return.

Thanks,
Rich and Tina

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful chalet!! The home was impeccably maintained and many extras available for renters use! The evening sunsets were priceless and the walk down to the main road each morning was a great way to get the heartrate going!! Great location to visit the many beautiful natural settings in and around Murphy! River Walk and Shoebooties in Murphy are MUSTS! Nice neighbors also - except for the two dogs that were loose and scared the pooooo out of me and my small dog!

Many thanks to the owners!!

GREAT CABIN, GREAT OWNERS.

  • 5 of 5
The cabin (chalet, I guess) is just as advertised, and is excellent. We slept up in the loft, and the kids (4 and 6yrs old) slept in the downstairs room. The loft is quite roomy, but felt even roomier with the lovely view of the mountains through the wall of windows.

Communication with the owners was easy and prompt. Claudia is a wealth of information, and very responsive. We arrived near midnight, and had difficulties with the electronic lock. I felt bad for calling her, but Claudia picked right up and was very helpful and nice even though it was obvious we had woken her up. A tip about the lock--if the door hasn't been opened for a while and you're having problems unlocking it, try quite gently pushing/pulling on the door as you operate the lock. I think the bolt gets pushed up against the jamb and needs to be "unstuck" so the little motor can pull the bolt out.

We spent most of our days hiking in the Nantahala National Forest (Fires Creek area, if my memory serves), and spent some time at the John C. Campell Folk School.

We mostly ate in the cabin or on the trail. The kitchen is fully stocked and nicely laid out.

The driveway is a bit steep. Not a problem, but I can imagine it might be tricky in the snow or ice.

Overall, a VERY good experience. My 6-year old and I chose this chalet on VRBO. We were wavering between several, but she picked this one. We're all glad--it turned out great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Welch Family! The tip about the door is much appreciated and I will check into making that a non issue in the near future. I enjoyed working with you and am so glad you had a great time while in our mountain home!
